SOURCE: Battery keeps dying on 2001 Ford Windstar.

Check your battery terminals make sure they are clean and corrosion free.
Also check all ...A-L-L courtesy lights in your car. there are some ceiling mounted lights that are passenger operated and may be on... Also check your glove compartment and consoles for lights.
Also check for charger cords... These have indicator lights and sometimes can drain the batt as well.
Also, under the hood, is a gravity activated lamp . Open the hood and make sure that it's going off and staying off as the hood closes...
Let me know if you find anything...

SOURCE: Instrument panel went dead

Checked Every fuse in the fuse box (no small task).This includes #4 - Power point Instrument Panel, #14 - Day time running lamps (auto lamps doesn't work nor does auto lock), #27 - ignition switch run feed, #35 - Instrument Cluster, #41 - Instrument Cluster, #42 - Delayed Accessory, #45 - Ignition switch run/start feed, #102 - Door locks body security module, #103 - Ignition switch, #110 - Ignition switch, & #116 - Ignition switch. But I also check all other ones as well, they all register OK. AC panel & radio work. Turn signals work. Mileage does not work, trip computer does. So, basically, everything works except auto head-lights, auto locks, and the dash cluster (no MPH, RPM, mileage display, Fuel, Temp, Tran Temp, and Oil Pressure).

2001 ford explorer sport wont charge


I'm not sure if you have all of the info you need to go forward with this.
The battery may be rated for 800 amps but could have less than 12 volts if the alternator is not charging it.
It could have a dead cell which would keep it from holding a charge.
You would need to check the charge of the battery with a volt meter, then see if the alternator is charging at 14 volts when the engine is running. The battery should be at least 12 volts with the engine off.
The problem could be in the wiring from the key switch or dash gauges back to the alternator.

Went to start my car - dead - the lights inside work - this happened once before checked the battery it is good and cleaned the battery post and cables and it worked fine- could it be the altinator?


How do you know the battery is good? If you are sure the battery is good (not sure how you determined this), then you should check the charging system. You can do this by checking battery voltage with engine off, then again with engine running. Voltage should be 1 - 2 volts higher with engine running if charging system is working. This is just a quick check, but will definitely identify a charging system that is not working at all.

1995 dodge stratus keeps going dead in driveway. I jump it off and let it run 15 mins to charge battery up. Turn off and crank right up, but the next day it is dead again.


With engine running used a voltmeter and check voltage at battery, you will be checking alternator out put voltage, should have a reading of no less then 13.0 volts, if less bad alternator, the reason it keeps going dead is that the car is using the battery to run it .till the battery has no more power, then you jump it and the battery is charge up again and will run again till it goes dead again.

My battery keep dying and won't hold a charge.


I have the same exact problem. First thing I did was replace the battery. Still having problem. Alternator charges then, an hour later the battery is dead. I was at a stoplight and suddenly the air amd radio quit for a couple of seconds, the volt meter hit bottom, then kicked back in and everything worked again. Turned the car off, started it back up. Parked, went inside, came back out, battery dead. New battrery, Good alternator, could it be the regulator shorting out? do they have regulators anymore?

I have an 800 amp battery for my 1995 land cruiser. how many cold cranking amps should my battery have?


Hi: The Specs on a Battery Range From 600 Cold Cranking Amps to 750 Cold Cranking Amps. So if you have a 800 Cold Cranking Amp Battery installed then you are at or Above The Required Amperage Needed.Unless your Running Extra Lighting or Accessories. and you have to consider your Alternator Out-put as well.You need a Alternator that will Keep up the Charge on Your Battery. So in a Nut Shell the More Add Ons you Have the More and The Harder your Alternator has to Work to Try and Keep Your Battery at a Full Charge . A Fully Charged Battery you'll have 2.1 Volts per Cell = 12.6 . Hope this has helped you, Please Let me know how I've Solved your Problem with my Solution. Thanks and Good Luck From d_hubbs

My silverado 3500 01 battery keeps going


Ck the charge rate at the battery posts. The proper range is 23.6 to 14.2v , The higher the voltage the llower the amps. Ie; at 13v Alternator is about 10% under capacity. @ 12v it is charging at max capacity. @ 15 v isthe alt is not charging but frying your battery. 9amps is ok if battery is fairly charged but at start up it should sit on 13-13.6 volts. for about 15 seconds the start climbing to less charge towards 14.2.

Charging system on 1997 ford explorer


sorry, probably not. the charging specs need to be checked. with accessories on, ck volts and amps. should be 13.8 minimum volts and around 2-8 amps or so. the only other thing i can think of if it is charging is to ck single thin wire behind alternator for good connection. i believe that is the reading for the dash lite.
